The Dear Wild Place: Greenspaces, Community and Campaigning


In The Dear Wild Place local campaigner Emily Cutts recounts her community’s successful David and Goliath struggle against housing development in Glasgow’s North Kelvin Meadow, also known as ‘the Children’s Wood’. Emily talks about the importance of green space for physical and mental health. She explains why getting children outdoors is crucially important for their well-being and outlines the innovative projects at the heart of the Children’s Wood campaign.

In conversation with Carol Craig, series editor for Postcards from Scotland, Emily also reveals how her campaign group galvanised their community to challenge the rampant materialism of modern life.
